Arab-American Group
Won’t Release Hagel Tape

Washington Free Beacon, by Alana Goodman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/14/2013 10:43:41

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) filed for cloture on the nomination of Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense late Wednesday afternoon as Republican senators continued to call for additional disclosure of material from Hagel. Among the requested materials: the full text and details of several speeches Hagel failed to report to the Senate Armed Services Committee that have since been uncovered. Fox News Channel on Tuesday reported on two speeches Hagel failed to disclose as requested, including one given in 2008 to the annual conference of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC).

Comments:
This whole thing stinks to high heaven. The quality of the leaders in Washington is appalling.

But is he still guilty of treason if he wasn´t bright enough to understand what he was saying ?

Is there a ´mercy clause´ when sentencing this type of criminal ?

How does Hagel find his way home at night ?

Just like Øbama- lots and lots to hide, and a lackadaisical fawning media that won´t investigate or be outraged by it.

Washington´s Growth Retreat
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/7/2014 12:34:50 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. economy has averaged about 2.5% growth for four and a half years in what is supposedly a recovery, median household income is below where it was when the recession ended in June 2009, and job growth is mediocre. But the political class seems intent on fighting over the blame rather than trying to escape the malaise. The latest evidence is John Boehner´s punt on immigration reform. Only days ago the House Speaker floated a set of reform principles that opened the door to a potential compromise with Democrats and the Senate. But the response from the anti-reform right was

Megyn Kelly practically burst at Democratic congressman Adam Schiff on Thursday over his non-answers to her repeated questions on the Benghazi attacks. Kelly said there’s still plenty the American people don’t know, while Schiff dismissed the “conspiracy theory” there was a cover-up of any kind. Kelly called out President Obama for saying in his Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly that Benghazi security was lax and that he called it a terrorist attack a week after it happened. On that latter part, Kelly brought up Obama’s appearance on The View as evidence he did not. Schiff contended that Obama calling it

Bob Costas Profile of Putin Portrays

NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas opened the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia with a short profile of the country’s president, Vladimir Putin. Airing on NBC, the profile package portrayed Putin as a statesman and an accomplished peacemaker, crediting him for preventing an American airstrike on Syria and for coaxing the Iranian government to the nuclear negotiating table. The profile also framed Putin as President Barack Obama’s superior in terms of global statesmanship. “Just in the past year, Putin brokered a deal to allow Syria to avoid a U.S. military strike by giving up its chemical weapons,” Costas said in a

Bill Would Make Food Stamp
Recipients Show Photo ID

A group of House conservatives have introduced legislation to require that people using food stamps show a photo ID whenever using them. The bill, introduced by Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), would “amend the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 to require households that receive supplemental nutrition assistance benefits to present photographic verification at the time food is purchased with such benefits.” In the recently passed farm bill, the SNAP program was reauthorized at $80 billion per year. A recent Government Accountability Office report detailed fraud in the system to the tune of $2.2 billion paid in error during 2009 alone. “The SNAP program exists

A University of California, Berkeley professor is requiring 100 students to create Twitter accounts and post comments about "Islamophobia," anti-Islamist Muslim activist Tarek Fatah reports. In his Toronto Sun column Wednesday, Fatah, a founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, describes the "panicked message" he received from a Berkeley student taking a class taught by Hatem Bazian. Bazian directs the school´s Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project. Though the Twitter posts are a part of the student´s grade, he wrote that it felt unethical because "he´s basically using us as unpaid labor to work on his agenda." Most of the students are not Muslims, Fatah

President Obama helped late night host Jay Leno say farewell during his final “Tonight Show” episode on Thursday. “Jay, you´ve made a whole lot of jokes about me over the years but do not worry, I´m not upset,” said Obama in a video message aired on the broadcast. “On a totally unrelated note, I’ve decided to make you my new ambassador to Antarctica,” he added. “Hope you’ve got a warm coat, funny man.” The clip was played during a video montage of celebrities bidding Leno goodbye after 22 years hosting the late night NBC show. Obama has appeared many times on Leno —

As I was watching the explosive IRS targeting hearing, this morning, I was reminded of Speaker Boehner´s words from eight and a half months ago. "My question isn´t about who is going to resign. My question is who´s going to jail over this scandal?" Since then, the Obama administration has gone from an initial "outrage" phase to a "phony scandal" phase, to the current old news/"what difference does it make" phase in which they think enough time has passed that they can push IRS rules on 501 (C) (4) groups that codify into law the what the IRS did to

Newly-minted Mayor of New York City Bill De Blasio is calling for school closures on two Muslim holidays and the Lunar New Year. Eid al-Fitr, which marks the last day of Ramadan, Eid al-Adha, also known as the Feast of the Sacrifice, and the Lunar New Year, which celebrates the first day of the Chinese Calendar Year, were all given the go-ahead; but De Blasio passed over the Hindu festival Diwali. Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights—which celebrates life, its enjoyment, and goodness—has historical origins dating back to Indian “harvest” festivals.

For the fourth night in a row, Bill O’Reilly spent time talking about his interview with President Obama, and this time he said that Obama doesn’t consider Benghazi and the IRS to be the serious, important scandals conservatives do because he has a very social justice-centric agenda and anything that doesn’t concern that is not considered to be that important in the grand scheme of things. O’Reilly argued that “the far right is making a huge mistake” in saying Obama is going out of his way to harm the nation, saying he learned during his big interview that Obama’s number one

As former Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi’s trials continue, it’s enlightening to consider what is likely to be one of the centerpieces of the trial: longstanding accusations that Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood party worked with foreign terrorist organizations, including al-Qaeda, against the national security of Egypt. Based on these accusations of high treason, Morsi and others could face the death penalty. Concerning some of the more severe allegations, one of Egypt’s most widely distributed and read newspapers, Al Watan, recently published what it said were recorded conversations between Morsi and Muhammad Zawahiri,

Alaska is poised to become the third state to legalize retail marijuana after pro-pot advocates this week cleared the signature hurdle to place an initiative on the August ballot. The Committee to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska hit 31,593 valid signatures Tuesday, well above the 30,169 signatures required to place the measure before voters. The initiative is expected to appear on the Aug. 19 primary ballot once a final count is certified by the state. Alaska follows in the footsteps of Colorado and Washington, where voters approved measures to regulate the sale of recreational marijuana for adults in November 2012.

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue. According to the poll, 54% say the top priority for the

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes. This is also the Administration´s justification for issuing new regulations governing

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

Allman, son of Cher and her second husband rock musician Greg Allman, spoke to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday about his former drug use, which began at a young age. "I started with drugs around the same time that we all did, around 11,” Allman said. “I mean it´s just what you did, it´s just what everybody did.” He added that he started off using marijuana and ecstasy, then later began abusing harder drugs like heroin.

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread. As the Associated Press reports, school officials are apologizing because that was a really, really horrible idea. The school´s principal wrote a letter to parents, who were offended, and said the school doesn´t "perpetrate racial stereotypes." Unfortunately, that´s exactly what they did. In honor of Black History Month, we´d like to explain exactly why your fried chicken and watermelon lunch is ill-advised, with the hope that people will find better ways to honor this
